Neuropsychologist Joins OU Physicians

Monday, September 11, 2017 -

Neuropsychologist Daniel J. Heyanka, Ph.D., has established his practice with OU Physicians. He has also been named an assistant professor for the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine. Neuropsychologists look at how the brain and the rest of the nervous system influence a person's cognition and behaviors.        

Heyanka is board certified in clinical neuropsychology. He specializes in diagnosing and treating patients with neurodegenerative disorders, brain tumors, movement disorder, cerebrovascular disorders and traumatic brain injury. He often conducts neuropsychological evaluations on patients prior to and following brain tumor surgery and treatment.      

Heyanka comes to OU Physicians from Bay Pines, Florida, where he was a neuropsychologist for the Veteran’s Affairs Medical Center. He completed a clinical neuropsychology fellowship at the OU College of Medicine and the Veteran’s Affairs Medical Center in Oklahoma City, after earning his doctorate in clinical psychology at Nova Southeastern University, Fort Lauderdale, Florida. He earned his master’s degree in clinical practices in psychology, graduating summa cum laude from the University of Hartford, West Hartford, Connecticut. 

Heyanka sees patients on the OU Health Sciences Center campus. For appointments, call (405) 271-4488.

With more than 975 doctors and advanced practice providers, OU Physicians is the state’s largest physician group. The practice encompasses almost every adult and child specialty. Many OU Physicians have expertise in the management of complex conditions that is unavailable anywhere else in the state, region or sometimes even the nation. Some have pioneered surgical procedures or innovations in patient care that are world firsts. 

OU Physicians see patients in their offices at the OU Health Sciences Center in Oklahoma City and at clinics in Edmond, Midwest City, Lawton and other cities around Oklahoma. When hospitalization is necessary, they often admit patients to OU Medical Center. Many also care for their patients in other hospitals around the metro area. OU Physicians serve as faculty at the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine and train the region’s future physicians.
